76 Days till Spring!

It a new year and that means its time to start the count down till Spring begins! Spring is my favorite time of the year. I love it when the flowers start to bloom and pretty colors return to the landscape.

With the drought this past year, I don't know if all my flowers will make it, but I am very excited that the daffodil, iris, and alstroemeria foliage is coming up!
There is more green in my yard now, than there has been in a long time. Now I can't wait till the Daffodils start to bloom and  yellow blooms scattered throughout the yard! It won't be too much longer. In past years the daffodils have started blooming anywhere from the end of January to around Valentine's day.

The first seed catalogs of the year arrived in the mail box today! Yeehaw! That means more will be arriving soon and the local stores should be putting up their seed displays as they clear out the Christmas inventory!


  1. My word! Your yard looks like it should be March! We have just a few brave daffodils that are cutting their green blades through the mulch. The earliest ones here won't bloom until the end of February.

  2. I got Nuthin'!!!Hahaaaa....My yard is still trying to recover from the lack of rain...Your yard looks Great!
    Happy weekend!

  3. Wow, your yard has life! We are still covered in snow from the storm that hit right before Christmas-I'm not complaining, because like your area, we have suffered from extreme draught, and this snow will likely save our farmers and ranchers.

  4. Oops..."drought" would be the correct spelling!

  5. It looks like you've got daff buds already. I noticed a little bloom getting ready to open on one of our jonquils yesterday.


I appreciate all of your comments and read them all! It makes my day to hear from you!
